GSL- any body got some pictures to post yet?

Recommended Posts

Hoping that someone has pictures to post from the GSL! I so wanted to go but forces were working against me traveling to it this year.

There are a number of groups of pictures on Facebook. Steve Hinson, Roy Sorenson, and another (I forget the name) have posted so far.

Heard a rumor that Gregg Hutchings made it to the GSL, maybe a good sign?

I'm working my way through editing  over 1000 of the the official entry shots (three photos of each model). When they're done, I'll have them up on the GSL Fotki page, hopefully by the end of this week.

As usual, these guys are out of my league.  Did enjoy the seminars.

Wasn't there something about a rumored long-lost model that was supposed to make an appearance? Any news on that? What's the story?

It might have been Dennis Doty's Jaguar XKE. Mark Gustavson announced at GSL that it would be placed in the International Model Car Builders Museum.

Ah, I know that one! Was just looking at those magazines last week. Thanks! B)

I posted on Fakebook some photos.  I have already taken pictures of John Teresi's awesome models when he was at Desert Scale, I don't care to duplicate effort, same with other models that deserved awards.  I also choose what trips my trigger.  So these are just a fraction of the entries.

Here is the Common Kit category, and Ferraris I liked.  Again, Teresi's Berlin Buick is not included out of spite, but I already took pictures, and you will see it in every magazine anyway.  But I did take pictures of that goofy looking VW some guy dreamed up.  ;)

Actually, three models were unveiled. One was a very old, significantly customized/stretched 16th (?) scale candy apple red Jaguar, and if that was the Dennis Doty one mentioned in this 2016 MCM thread, that was it. I can't readily find old scan photos to confirm that, but other guys might round up some old ones or have the latest photos of it at GSL. The second was a very customized green '49 or '50 Ford 'Ranchero' whose builder was right there in person to show it, and the third was the completed restoration of the 1964 Revell-Pactra Contest Senior Division co-winning Ford cabover, built by the late Bob Nordberg. I covered the rediscovery of that last one and Nordberg's others in this older thread, and posted my two update photos of it there.

Looking forward to seeing your photos. From what I have seen, it was a great show with many incredible models.

I always enjoy show photos (partly because I never get to go myself) and these are the best I've ever seen. Thanks Steve!

Glad you enjoyed them, but just to be clear, as I mentioned in the post below, Andy Barlow is the guy that actually took the photos.
